determining mechanical properties of steel using ultrasonic

Dear friends
I want to determine the mechanical properties of steel. But I do not know which kind of wave with what frequency is suitable for this purpose? And what other parameters do I need for this test?
And I need some full text articles in this case.
If you answer me I would be very grateful .
Regards
Mahboobeh

Re: determining mechanical properties of steel using ultrasonic
The attached link from Panametrics-NDT describes the a procedure for determining elastic modulus in steel using longitudinal and shear waves. The optimum transducer frequency will depend on the thickness of the samples that you wish to test.

Panametrics is proposing parallel-surface specimens and the use of two different straight beam probes (one for longitudinal and one for shear waves).

Instead, you can use one angle beam probe for longitudinal waves, which inherently also has a steeper shear wave. Then you have to use specimens of half cylindrical shape, preferably with two different radii (similar to the SULZER variation of the ISO control specimen). This method was published in the early seventies by Ulrich Betz (at that time with University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt, former with MPA Stuttgart). As far as I remember, the paper could be found in the Krautkraemer journal 'Das Echo'.

The method desxribed by Pnametrics has the advantage of being certain that the two velocities are measured over the same path - and in the same direction with respect to any anisotropies due to grain structure. The disadvatage for some is the cost of contract straight-beam shear wave transducers and the need to make a specimen with parallel sides. Using angle beam longitudinal and shear waves with different angles is fine for materials with uniform properties all directions. However, a surprising variety of materials have directional properties depending upon how they were manufactured.
